    Othorion Update - October 11, 2017
    A new patch has been dispatched for our server. More info will be edited in if hotfixes are needed.
    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

    >> System Updates
    • Added support for some kind of custom music in the server. You may not see it from there, but this is a huge step forward in our technology. My playlist is long since outdated, and only has popular hits from ~2014-2015. Don't get angry at me if "One Republic - Counting Stars" or "Taylor Swift - I Knew You Were Trouble" starts playing out of nothing.
    • The current Music system is highly experimental and I don't consider it part of Othorion yet. It has no means of disabling it via commands (only through Music options on the ESC menu) and might be removed any time. A far more superior system exists but is way too complex to teach how to fly already in Alpha.

    Othorion Update - October 10, 2017
    A new patch has been dispatched for our server. More info will be edited in if hotfixes are needed.
    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

    >> System Updates
    • Othorion's heart file has been updated to the latest 1.12.1 version.
    • Updated the server's protocol to allow both 1.12.1 and 1.12.2 versions to join Othorion.
    • Made many changes in the server's bandwith handling to increase performance.

    ➻ The above means that you may now connect with 1.12.x without issues. The new version changed many things which may have affected your experience, more specifically the ping latency:

    As I said earlier on the server, Mojang changed the way keepAlive packets work in the latest version of minecraft (from varInt to Long) and it appears as if they broke it in the process, many other servers in 1.12.2 are having this issue as well; hence why I rolled back the server's version.

    >> World Updates

    World Border
    • Added an elliptical border with a radius of 24 000 blocks, centered at x: 0 z: 0.
    • With the new border, the world area has been updated from ∞ to 576 000 000.

    Othorion Structures | NEW
    • Added support for custom structures to be generated in our world.
    - The engine is ready to go, but what is a structure generator without structures? That being said, I'll have to build stuff to be generated in our world, ranging from simple ruins and themed caves to rare dungeons. If you wish to contribute with your own structures, feel free to build them in single player and send me the world. If your creations are worthy, they may mark the life of many people in their expeditions.

    • Experience can no longer be stored into bottles.
    - This is due to a new, better experience storing system being worked on. Our bottle get command had to be disabled due to its internal corruption, causing issues everytime someone got experience (which is always happening). I promise the following system will be worth the wait.

    Trivia system

    Time between questions remain basically the same as the previous word reaction, happening every 8 minutes, with 60 seconds to answer.

    Modes available:

    Trivia: brings up a game related question for you to answer. Examples below:
    "What item can purge pottion effects?" - First player to type "milk" wins a reward.
    "How many villager professions are there?" - First player to type "five" or "5" wins a reward.
    "How many fireticks add one level of Bane of Arthropods enchantment?" - First player to type "0", "none", "none lol", "zero", "0 ticks"... wins a reward.
    ... and so on.
    I wrote exactly 98 questions, which is very little if you ask me - the trivia may get repetitive in the long term (days). More questions will be added with time! Most of them at the moment are just basic minecraft knowledge.

    Decoding: you have to unscramble words (from minecraft) in order to get a reward. Almost exactly like the system we already have, but with a few differentes:
    - You don't have to hover! The word will appear straightly in the chat.
    - Will happen less often due to the addition of other modes.

    Math: an equation will show up in chat, and the first smart one to solve it wins a reward! Example:
    "Solve 2+3/3-4*3/3!" ~
    *2 + (3 / 3) - ((4 * 3) / 3)*
    3 - (12 / 3)
    3 - 4 = -1
    The first player to type "-1" first earns a reward.

    Rewards are still to be improved; there are some base values and items which will get adjusted with time to achieve balance. I'll try to set up multiple rewards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
    First answer within 5 seconds: $25
    First answer in more than 5 seconds: $15
    Second player answer: $10









    I'm aware that there are a couple glitched things in the Trivia and I have been working to fix them. At this moment, only the actual Trivia is working - equations & unscrambling won't show up - but I have been working to fix these. Be aware that Othorion is, and will be a for quite some time, in alpha stage and bugs are prone to appear.
